about

Upon moving to Indianapolis, I was facing fears of well being and safety that could only be explained as my mistrust in God, but this song reminds me of the truth: that I am a soul meant for heaven, with riches stored up that thieves can't steal.

lyrics

I'm in the shelter that I've built with this momentary mortar and stone till the light rushes in and finally thaws out the cold. I'm temporarily in between the folds. I’m a homeless soul. They're passing me by, insured with work security. Oh, the cost of living will always be more than I can pay; trends like a wave we can chase to its end but never hold. I’m a homeless soul. No thief can steal the treasure unseen in my soul. I've lost my estate with no cash in the bank yet my debt, it is paid in whole. I’m a homeless soul. There’s an anchor in your hand, desperation woven in your threads, and it’s keeping you cold. Nothing you can put on can cover up this weather. There’s a melody in the souls of the unknown. The most unrelenting remedy is the one you cannot hold. No thief can steal the treasure unseen in my soul. I've lost my estate with no cash in the bank yet my debt, it is paid in whole. I've got investments that are out of this world. I've lost my estate with no cash in the bank, yet my debt, it is paid in whole. I've lost my estate with no cash in the bank, yet my debt, it is paid in whole. I’m a homeless soul.
